In the study group's second year at Greendale, Abed had a mental breakdown right before Winter break. He imagined the world had become stop motion animated just like the shows he and his mother would watch over the holidays. To the surprise of his friends Abed broke out into song on the campus squad. His performance involved him heading to the school's parking lot and jumping on top of a car to the roof of another car. Abed stopped singing after campus security tasered him. The song he sang, "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas opening theme", was first heard in "Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas".
